Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i feel like an idiot, but i'm running slack 9 and i can't find the gnome control center....the applications menu/desktop preferences has some stuff, but i want to change the applications menu itself and i can't figure out how to do that.
go to terminal and use tab completion to find it (type portion of what you are looking for, press tab twice first time gives system beep, second time gives list of posibilities)
look through list
see if there is anything with gnome and control or something, if so type it in terminal to use it.
thanks exodist, that worked. unfortunately it didn't help. i'm trying to configure the drop-down menu when i click on the gnome foot icon, so i can add programs i've installed myself etc. does anyone know how to do that?
right click on it go to menu options, I use enlgithenment, might be better for you, www.enlightenment.org d-load 16.5 nto 17. you run it and it has no menu's, click anywhere to open a menu that you specifiy ina text file, also has access to gnome menu's, and add a program, add it to text file boom in menu.
